Shuttle Bids Farewell to the Station Crew

"Well Gennady, all good things come to an end," shuttle commander Frederick Sturckow told station skipper Gennady Padalka.

The 13 space travelers have one last job to accomplish together before the hatches between their spacecraft are closed late Monday. A moving van holding a ton of trash and discarded equipment will be moved back aboard Discovery. The shuttle will undock Tuesday.

On Monday, shuttle astronaut Jose Hernandez told a TV interviewer his presence in space is proof that by working and studying hard, "any dream can be achieved." He grew up in a migrant worker family from Mexico. And the station's new resident, Nicole Stott, said she's looking forward to watching the planet over the next three months. She took up a watercolor kit to paint what she's seeing, The Associated Press reports.
